Designing Gingerbread Houses.....

"You are the Chief Architect Elf on Santa's gingerbread house design team. Santa needs a beautiful gingerbread house built by tomorrow. What will you do?"

We have been learning about geometric shapes, congruency and symmetry. To show off what we've learned I thought it might be fun to design our own gingerbread houses. We voted on the best design to use and then attempted to make our own gingerbread house. Notice I said attempted....... Well atleast it tasted good!

It's Pumpkin Time!
Recently the kids had fun doing "pumpkin math". We used measurement, estimation, counting, and addition to explore our pumpkins. We also got a little messy which is always fun.
